Event: Queer and/ in Translation

Readers may be interested in this forthcoming event.

Critical Sexology is an interdisciplinary seminar series for psychologists, sociologists, psychoanalysts, medical doctors, literary and cultural studies scholars, philosophers, artists, lawyers, and historians with a critical interest in the construction and management of gender and sexuality in the medical, discursive and cultural spheres.

Established in 2002 by Iain Morland and Lih-Mei Liao, Critical Sexology has since held three seminars per year. All meetings took place in London until 2011, when "Critical Sexology up North" was launched. One in three yearly sessions is now held at a university in a northern location, with plans to introduce an annual Midlands session from 2014. The seminar series is currently co-organised by Lisa Downing (University of Birmingham), Meg Barker (Open University), and Robert Gillett (Queen Mary, University of London).
